Clean House Tips For Dog Owners

By Yolanda Reyes

While the presence of dogs in your house may make it feel like home, it can also make it really messy. Dirty paws, dog hair, accidents and food spills can all turn your lovely home into a dump – quicker than you think. Here are some tips to help maintain a well-groomed home to match your well-groomed dog.

Implement Access Control

Dogs need constant attention. Few pet owners are able to be on-site every minute of every day. When you are away from home, make sure that you place your dog in a restricted area of the house. Pet stores and online retailers offer a wide variety of gates that can be easily installed to protect your pet and your furniture.

Another option is a cage or crate if your home is not suitable for a gate. Make sure the cage is big enough for the dog to move around in, and make it comfortable for them. Ask your veterinarian for suggestions, as they have experience with many different people and dogs and may have a solution you would not have thought of.

How to Tackle Odors and Stains

Because you live with your pet, you will have become accustomed to their unique scent. Your family and friends have not, and unless you want to hand out gas masks as they enter your home, you may want to do the smell test.

The smell test is best performed by a brutally honest friend or neighbor – the kind who won’t mince words. Invite them in and ask them to breathe in. It’s time to do something about doggy odors if they can smell ‘scent of dog’ anywhere in your home.

The first step is to open the windows to allow fresh air into your home. If the smell test seemed to pinpoint a particular location, your pet may have had a little accident there. If the area is still damp, blot it with absorbent paper straight away. The best cleaner is one designed specifically for pet odors, but a disinfectant spray will work in a pinch. Baking soda sprinkled on the spot absorbs both the moisture and the odors and can be vacuumed up once dry. Everyday air fresheners will only cover up the smell for a short while.

Don’t Forget, It’s Your Home

If you are still struggling to control your pet and the gate or cage are not helping, it may be time for you to take charge. You are the boss – or in dog-speak, the leader of the pack. Obedience training can help you take control of your home and your pet.
